Are you searching for an energetic canine that can match your enthusiasm for life? Do you enjoy helping dogs learn positive behaviors and tricks? Would you like a companion that will follow you everywhere and smother you with lots of attention? Then little Macho Man could be the one for you! This adorable Chihuahua mix may be pint sized, weighing in at just under 8lbs, but he is huge on giving out lots of sweet snuggles and tons of kisses! He has a zest for life with plenty of vibrant spunky energy to go around. Macho is a happy little dog who spreads good vibes wherever he goes! Everyone who meets him falls in love pretty quickly, he is such a little charmer! This guy gets along great with other dogs, and would prefer to have a buddy or two in his forever home to romp around and be daring with. Macho is still young, so he has a lot to learn about the world, but he is a smart dude and has been picking up on training fairly quickly. He walks well on his leash and would enjoy an active person who can take him on daily strolls, allowing him to explore the neighborhood around him. He likes playing with his squeaky toys, rambunctiously wrestling with the other dogs, and is now learning how to fetch! This lil pup is pretty interested in everything that’s going on…he’ll follow you around the house investigating what you are up to, while looking incredibly adorable the entire time. After he has worn himself out from bouncing around, he loves crawling into a nice lap for some down time and plenty of affection. He would thrive in a home where his people will understand he still needs a good amount of positive training to help him learn and grow into a well behaved guy. Macho is an awesome little dog who would make a great addition to a family who can provide him with the abundance of energy, love, and attention that he deserves!
